Former Yeovil Town midfielder Paul Terry has returned to the club. The 39 year old has been given the role of First Team Coach at Huish Park, after leaving a role he held at Oldham Athletic last season. The Barking-born player, who is the older brother of Chelsea legend John Terry spent four years at the club during its early days as a Football League side, after signing from Dagenham and Redbridge and went on to play for Leyton Orient in the Football League.
Paul has been involved at the club during pre-season training, and played alongside Darren Way and Terry Skiverton during his playing days. He made 154 appearances for the Glovers, scoring 12 goals for the club, and was part of the side that won promotion from League Two during the 2004-05 season. When he hung up his boots, he became a player's agent for six years, until last season when he became a first team coach working under Richie Wellens and Paul Jewell in League One. Their relegation and change of management has resulted in his departure. Darren Way says he hopes that he can make use of Terry's knowledge of player recruitment in the future:
"Paul is someone who strengthens the backroom staff and has a wealth of knowledge in player recruitment. Paul has personality, character and knows the history of this fantastic football club. He's the latest step in our bid to bring success back to Huish Park."
